Sir Gerald Kaufman: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what efficiency savings (a) her Department has sought from and (b) have been achieved by each of the non-departmental public bodies for which her Department is responsible in the last five years. 
Mr. Lammy: As announced in the 2004 spending review, the Department has a target to make £262 million efficiency savings by 2007-08. This includes a sub-target of £114 million efficiency savings by NDPBs. This sub-target has now been exceeded. At 31 March 2007, NDPBs had made the following savings:
|NDPB sector||2006-07 provisional gains||2007-08 target|
DCMS did not set targets for individual NDPBs but asked them to identify what savings they could achieve. The majority of 2006-07 data is still provisional and although we can be confident in the approximate accuracy of the overall figure, individual NDPB figures are subject to fluctuation. The 2005-06 gains, validated by the bodies, are:
|NDPB||2005-06 gains (£000)|
Progress at achieving savings has been periodically revised as NDPBs have implemented the programme, for example, where they have been able to validate additional savings. This means that these individual figures are higher than the aggregate total reported to HM Treasury in 2005-06, which has previously appeared in published reports.
In the SR2002 period (2003-06), the British Library, the British Museum, Sport England, the tourism bodies, English Heritage and the Lottery bodies undertook modernisation programmes as part of the Departments PSA4 target. All targets relating to PSA4 were met, as detailed in the Departments 2005 and 2006 autumn performance reports, copies of which are available in the House Library.
Mr. Stewart Jackson: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what grants for which her Department is responsible have been given to Peterborough city council since 1997; and what the value was of such grants. 
Mr. Woodward: In the revenue return to Communities and Local Government, Peterborough reported that it has received no grants between 1997-98 and 2006-07 from my Department. These specific grants are those inside Aggregate External Finance (AEF) (i.e. revenue grants paid for councils core services) paid to Peterborough and exclude grants outside AEF such as capital grants, funding for local authorities' housing management responsibilities, European funding; or where authorities are simply one of the recipients of funding paid towards an area.
These revenue returns do not therefore detail the money that is paid out by the National Lottery, DCMS non-departmental public bodies and other sources. Departmental data indicates that the following grants were paid to Peterborough.
The following table shows the number and value of grants on the Department's Lottery Grants Database (which uses information supplied by the lottery distributors) where the name of the recipient is recorded as Peterborough city council. Lottery distributing bodies make grant decisions independently of my Department.

(a) (b) (i) The Department had a zero spend on advertising between 2000 and 2002. The expenditure and agencies used for advertising and consultancy for advertising campaigns from 2003 has been as follows:
